Norwegian salmon cured for an hour, then smoked for 30 minutes with smoking wood chips. Salmon is then seared skin side down until crispy.

The salmon rests on a classic beurre blanc sauce, accompanied with grilled/charred asparagus, deep-fried capers and onions to create texture, freshly cubed cucumbers and finished off with a red pepper rouille.

I love adding the edible flowers for contrast and drama – it helps bring the dish to life.
